Splatoon Squid Papercraft

Splatoon is a Nintendo 4 v 4 online third-person shooter where the players have the ability to transform between a human form and a squid form. The aim is to cover the map in the colour ink of your team. You can only shoot in human form, but move much faster as a squid. 
This papercraft is of the player's squid form. It can get a bit fiddly and frustrating attaching all the tentacles & spikes to each other, so take it slowly and one flap at a time. It may also help to score more folds than you might normally do if you're used to building smooth. The rest is a simple strip construction, so I've left the difficulty as medium rather than medium/hard, but remember you'll need some experience to build!

Captain Toad

Captain Toad first appeared as the leader of the Toad Brigade in Super Mario Galaxy and Galaxy 2. Since then he has appeared in Super Mario 3D World, with a slight redesign and a unique set of levels. These levels involved guiding Captain Toad (who cannot jump) through puzzle dioramas, collecting stars along the way. This concept was later expanded on and Captain Toad got his very first game as a main character with Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

Niko (Wind Waker)

Niko is one of Tetra's pirates in The Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker. He is the lowest-ranking member of the pirates - at least until Link comes along.

Tips: Start with the top of the head and build down. Build the arms from the hands up to the shoulders, and then attach to the body. Do the same with the legs, build feet up and attach them once fully built. You may want to put a little glue on the arms to help hold them in the position you want. You will probably need to put some weights in his feet to help him stand up.

Wind Waker Rat

This papercraft is of the rats that appear in the Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker. These sneaky little critters will attack Link and attempt to steal some of his Rupees, or sell him various items if he scatters All-purpose Bait in front of one of their holes.

Tips: The difficulty of this craft is about medium. The parts on the template are numbered, so follow that if you need help. Sealing off can be very fiddly, so take your time and use a cocktail stick or something small and thin to get into the gaps. Cut out the eyes from their black background and stick them to head. Bend the tooth in the middle, put some glue along the top and press it to the roof of the mouth. This should be enough to hold it in place.
